Stodmarsh National Nature Reserve

Stodmarsh National Nature Reserve

Stodmarsh NNR is situated in the lower regions of the north Kent plain within the Stour valley.

Where: a picturesque reserve spreading out over the north Kent plain within the Stour valley, and bordered on one side by the River Great Stour.

Main habitat: an internationally-important mixture of reed beds, fens, ditches, wet grassland and open water.

Why visit: the reserve is one of the best birdwatching sites in the south East of England, where you can enjoy peaceful walks and stunning views of the river valley.

Star species: the site is especially important for rare species such as bittern, marsh harriers and the shining ramshorn snail, as well as that iconic British mammal, the water vole.

Access: the reserve has over 6 km of footpaths, including a circular walk around the whole site. There are short and long easy access ‘sensory’ trails at the Stodmarsh end of the reserve, both with wheelchair access.

Other nearby attractions: there are two other NNRs close to Stodmarsh, the ancient woodland site of Blean Woods and the coastal wetland reserve of Pegwell Bay. The historic city of Canterbury is also close by.
